Lagos State Partially Opens Chrisland School For Terminal Students

By Damilare Adeleye

The Lagos State government has granted permission for students in terminal classes to access Chrisland High School for physical learning, ahead of their examinations that are due to begin soon.

The Commissioner for Education, Mrs Folasade Adefisayo, in a statement by the Assistant Director of the ministry, Ganiu Lawal, made this known while giving an update on the case of the deceased student of the school, Miss Whitney Adeniran.

Recall that the school was shut over the controversial death of 12-year-old Whitney Adedina, who died in February of alleged electrocution, during the school’s inter-house sports activities in Agege stadium.

The commissioner, however, hinted that arrangements are ongoing for other categories of students to return to school.

Adefisayo said: “The school will remain closed until all necessary judicial processes superintended over by the state’s Ministry of Justice and other ongoing administrative inquests within the purview of the Office of Education Quality Assurance and other agencies are completed.”

The Commissioner added that, “the temporary permission to allow the terminal classes comprising JSS3 and SS3 students access to the school was granted to enable them to participate in their terminal examinations.”
